Been in 4th for a while...any suggestions?

Postby theo2076 » Sun Jul 06, 2003 11:38 pm

14 team Yahoo! points league.

Seems that to date, position players get about 3 times the points a pitcher does, for obvious reasons. So I am thinking of dumping some top pitchers for some serious bats. I have Prior and Loaiza. Most guys in my league still think pitching matters a lot, I am trying to load up on bats and watch myself finally climb out of 4th spot. I am only about 100 points out.

I got rid of Randy Johnson for Mike Lowell. Think that points wise I will get a lot more out of Lowell.

Who should I go for? Pujols? Helton? Delgado? Nomar?

Any help or thoughts would be great.

Here is the rest of the team:
C Perez, Eddie (C-Mil)
1B Mientkiewicz, Doug (1B-Min)
2B Grudzielanek, Mark (2B-ChC)
3B Lowell, Mike (3B-Fla)
SS Gonzalez, Alex (SS-Fla)
OF Wells, Vernon (CF-Tor)
OF Payton, Jay (CF, LF-Col)
OF Encarnacion, Juan (RF, CF-Fla)
Util Renteria, Edgar (SS-StL)
Bench (DL now) Jones, Jacque (LF-Min)
Bench Hidalgo, Richard (RF-Hou)
Bench Blake, Casey (3B, 1B-Cle)
Bench Miller, Damian (C-ChC)
Bench Sweeney, MikeDL (1B, DH-KC)
Bench Hudson, Orlando (2B-Tor)
DL Johnson, Nick (1B, DH-NYY)

Pitching:
Prior, Mark (SP-ChC)
Pavano, Carl
Borowski, Joe (RP-ChC)
Carter, Lance (RP-TB)
Peavy, Jake (SP-SD)
Farnsworth, Kyle (RP-ChC)
Meche, Gil (SP-Sea)
Franklin, Ryan (RP, SP-Sea)
Ponson, Sidney (SP-Bal)
Loaiza, Esteban (SP-CWS)

I would try and see what you can get for Loaiza. Maybe a 1B , 2B or SS. Trading Prior away would really make your pitching staff a lot less potent IMO. (Even though Loaiza has been about as good this year, but I wouldn't want to have him as my "ace" for the second half...I could be wrong though) Also, I might take a flier on a free agent catcher if I were you. Maybe a Victor Martinez??? Either way, I would try and trade Loaiza for a bat. Good Luck.
